MeediOS Beta is released!

Welcome to Berlin!

Berlin

The MeediOS team is pleased to announce the long awaited beta release of MeediOS - Berlin. Now you can truly view and manage your media your way.

WHAT IS MEEDIOS?

MeediOS is a flexible solution for browsing and playing your media on your media centre (HTPC). MeediOS manages and displays all of your media in a single cohesive environment. With extensive customizability, elegant interface and family friendly features, MeediOS is the perfect interface for any media centre.

Supported media includes: Movies, TV Shows, Music, Pictures, Games and On-line Media.

Our project is open source and was originally inspired by the very customizable commercial Meedio software, acquired by Yahoo several years ago.

HOW MUCH DOES MEEDIOS COST?

MeediOS and all its plug-ins are, and will always be, free of charge! It is developed by a community that's passionate about perfecting the Media PC (HTPC) experience. We are driven by what we can achieve, not by any profits to be made.

WHY CHOOSE MEEDIOS?

Freedom. MeediOS does not restrict you. It allows you to display your media, the way you want it displayed.

Simplicity. MeediOS is quick and easy to install, and intuitive and easy to use.

Control. MeediOS is great for those who want more control from their front-end software, you can obsessively fine-tune it to their satisfaction by using the incredibly powerful and advanced configuration editor. Unlike competing solutions, you are not limited in configuring new menu options, menu names, or database views. MeediOS lets you set up new media views based on any data available in the library, and supports "on the fly" searching.

Power. MeediOS fully supports both single-PC and client-server installs.  Now all your PCs can access a single media library stored on your home network or even remotely. If it can be accessed from Windows Explorer it can be reached from MeedIOS.

WHAT IS IN THE BETA RELEASE?

  • A much improved installer to simplfy the setup process. There is no need to use configuration editor except for advanced installations. And MeediOS keeps itself up to date with no intervention from the user.
  • Media importers that recognize most media naming schemes, including NFO files. We DON'T require your media to be stored in one folder, or named in one format "Movie Name (year)" etc.
  • Client-Server support so you access your media library from anywhere.
  • Speed. MeediOS has been upgraded to .NET 4.5 taking advantage of improvements to WPF.
  • Customisation. Over 200 plugins to extend the out-of-the-box functionality, including plugins to:
    • manage your media by renaming or moving files to locations based on MeediOS library tags
    • import and name your media from many different formats, including .nfo files, from popular PVR recording formats, from regex expressions
    • scrape media details from popular sites such as IMDB, Moviedb, Audiodb or TVdb, then add details such as RottenTomatoes and KidsInMind ratings
    • format and present your media just the way you like it, including fanart and posters
    • play your media using your favourite player
    • mix and scrobble your music using MusicIP or lastfm
    • add sophisticated remote control macros, using RS232 or USB-UIRT, or just learn your own remote commands dirctly within MeediOS.

madVR PLAYER

When video and sound quality is essential, you can use the madVR Video Player plugin for MeediOS. No more fiddling with settings in MPC-HC or external players.


Our madVR player is part of MeediOS - with all the metadata available to display from MeediOS' database. The madVR player installs easily and lets you play almost anything using madVR, LAV, and Reclock (as an option).


The madVR player will use your existing codecs or download, register, and keep up to date all codecs automatically.

PVR Support

PVR

The Meedios PVR plugin acts as a client to the popular ArgusTV PVR software. It allows the user to browse, watch and delete recordings, manage upcoming recordings and search guide by title to set up simple recording schedules.

Because Argus TV uses a client/server approach, you can build a modular system, for example multiple Meedios clients, one server for MeediOS media files, and one or more computers to do the actual recording. Or you can combine those functions on just one computer.
